PlayStation Plus’ December lineup includes Worms Rumble and Just Cause 4

PlayStation Plus subscribers can add three games to their library starting December 1. The new batch of freebies includes Worms Rumble, Just Cause 4, and Rocket Arena.

Worms Rumble is the latest game in the cult-hit Worms franchise. The title is a 32-player online battle royale game that features cross-platform support. The title will be available for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 subscribers.

The game is a notable addition, as it’ll be making its debut as part of PlayStation Plus. A similar strategy increased Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout‘s popularity at launch, making it the most downloaded game in PS Plus history. Sony plans on taking the same approach with Destruction AllStars early next year, which was originally slated as a PlayStation 5 launch title but was delayed and shifted to a free title.

Avalanche Studio’s 2018 sandbox shooter Just Cause 4 will be available for all subscribers. In our review, we said, “if you’re looking for an open-world playground to mess around in, Just Cause 4 provides a nice space for that.”

Rocket Arena is a colorful, competitive shooter that was released in July. The game originally cost players $30, but the price drastically dropped to $5 shortly after its release.

Non-PS Plus subscribers who own Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, FIFA 21, and Grand Theft Auto V are getting a free multiplayer weekend in December, allowing them to try those games online without a PS Plus subscription. The event takes place from December 19 to December 20.

Before December rolls around, PS Plus subscribers still have a chance to pick up November’s free games, which include PlayStation 5 launch title Bugsnax and Hollow Knight.

Memorial Day is coming up, so you're probably wondering what games you should play on your PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 5 over the holiday weekend. Lucky for you, a new batch of games were added to the PlayStation Plus Premium and Extra game catalog earlier this week, and it brought plenty of games well worth your time. Three in particular stand out to me; download them today and try them out over the next few days.

The first is a Western from Rockstar Games that needs little introduction and is a must-play if you haven't experienced it yet. The next is an open-world game that kick-started a new series for Ubisoft and turns 10 next week. Finally, a retro PlayStation 1 game that just came to PlayStation Plus Premium offers up a good time if you enjoy sports or racing games.

If you somehow haven't played the 2018 open-world classic Red Dead Redemption 2 yet and you have a PlayStation Plus subscription, we have good news. PlayStation announced in a blog post Wednesday that the game will be available for free for the Plus program's Extra and Premium tiers.

Subscribers can play this massive hit, along with 12 other games, starting on May 21.  Users will also get access to Red Dead Online, the game's multiplayer experience that allows players to create their own character and mess around inside the world as they see fit -- from forming a group of outlaws to rob people on the road to hunting animals.

The weekend is here, so you probably want to sit back and relax by playing some video games. If you're subscribed to PlayStation Plus Premium or Extra on PS4 or PS5, then there are tons of fantastic titles to choose from in the subscription service's vast game catalog. It's a lot to sift through, so I've handpicked three titles I think you should check out if you haven't played them already.

One is a superhero game that launched alongside the PS5 and can be beaten within a weekend. The next is an eerie indie Metroidvania that just got added to PS Plus Extra when it launched on May 9. Finally, there's a sequel to a fantastic roguelike (not Hades 2) where you play as a new person in the same family every time you die.
